Chiefs Activate OL Laurent Duvernay-Tardif From IR, Waive S Ron Parker

The Kansas City Chiefs have activated OL Laurent Duvernay-Tardif from injured reserve on Tuesday, according to Sam Mellinger.

Brooke Pryor reports that the Chiefs are waiving S Ron Parker to make room for Duvernay-Tardif.

Duvernay-Tardif suffered a fractured fibula during the team’s 30-14 win over the Jaguars back in October before being designated to return a few weeks ago.

Duvernay-Tardif, 27, is a former sixth-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2014. He was entering the final year of his rookie contract when he agreed to a six-year, $41.94 million extension that includes $14 million guaranteed.

Duvernay-Tardif stands to make base salaries of $3.31 million and $6.203 million over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2018, Duvernay-Tardif has appeared in five games for the Chiefs.

Parker, 31, originally signed on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Newberry back in 2011. He spent two years in Seattle before signing on with the Chiefs for the 2013 season.

Parker was in the fourth year of his five-year, $25 million contract that included $8 million guaranteed when the Chiefs released him last March. He had a brief stint with the Falcons before returning to the Chiefs before the start of the 2018 season.

In 2018, Parker appeared in 15 games for the Chiefs and recorded 77 tackles, one sack, two interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown, and six pass defenses.
